Registration Process

This page is designed for our Brigade Leaders and Participants who are in the process of finalizing their brigades to Honduras. If you would like to learn about Shoulder to Shoulder brigades in general, please visit our main Brigade Page.

Currently scheduled brigades appear on our Brigade Calendar.

How to register a NEW Brigade:

  1. Brigade Leaders, contact Sharon Mullen at Sharon.m@shouldertoshoulder.org to begin the process. Sharon will determine the needs of your brigade, the optimal clinic location for your brigade to volunteer, on-site costs, and scheduling. Sharon will add your brigade to the Shoulder to Shoulder Brigade Calendar and secure your desired dates at the Shoulder to Shoulder clinic site.

Once your brigade is added to the calendar, you will be contacted by Sue Komarnicki at Fellowship Travel International (skomarnicki@fellowship.com or 800-235-9384 x112) to begin the process of booking travel to the project site. Fellowship Travel International is responsible for booking travel, collecting registrations, and collection of funds for Shoulder to Shoulder brigades.
